Best Answer

get a large spray bottle big enough to hold the followig ingredients:

1 cup vegetable oil or white mineral oil
2 cups water
2 teaspoons bleach free dish soap

Add all ingredients to spray bottle and shake well before each use because the oil separates from the soap mixture once it sits for a bit. When spraying your plants, bushes etc... be sure you spray under the leaves and on any new growth as that is where the aphids love to hide and eat. This works excellent for us and I hope it will do the same for you. Be sure not to add more soap than required as it can kill your plants.
